The Pineapple Habanero margarita was great. The Remolino and top shelf margaritas were lacking and the food was bland. (had the fajitas with all the bells and whistles). They could have had an off day, but thank goodness my BFF was in town and we value good conversation better than the food, most of which we left on the table and opted not to carry home.

The brunch was good! The manager came over after a while to make sure we were doing well so that was a nice, personal touch. Every place has a lack of servers so I wasn’t surprised when there was long periods of time between our waiter checking on our table. I do prefer their lunch menu to their breakfast menu. But nothing beats their tomato roasted salsa!

Best food ever! We went with the Chef’s specialties for all of our dishes and drinks and they were beyond phenomenal. Plus, we had our energetic 10-month old son dining with us and every staff member was as sweet as can be to him. They even blessed him with a free bowl of their signature sweet corn ice cream!

Service took forever. Didn’t receive all the items we ordered. Refills came when begged for, as well as any service to our table. The food is great! The only reason I’d consider visiting again.

Our favorite place to go whenever we are in Dallas. We love the Budin Azteca. Service is attentive but not obtrusive. Wish there was one of these in North Carolina where we live.

Server’s mask was below his nose. Cerviche salad was not as good as usual. Lots of fish, but the dressing was not as good as usual.

When we got there main hostess was not friendly and since most of our party ended up canceling due to the thunder storm she seemed bothered. Our waiter was nice but after we got food (which was was great) the waiter didn’t come by anymore. The manager did however stop by and got us fixed all fixed up. The weather can impact a person mood so would give it another in hopes to have a better experience.

This restaurant is so amazing! They have outdoor seating, which I personally love and they are flexible if you want to make substitutions and I highly recommend the Salmon de Coco! The coconut rice is amazing and so is the Salmon.

This was our 4th visit to a Meso Maya restaurant. We always have the a Budin Azteca. I usually get the chicken version and my wife the veggie version. This time I had the beef tenderloin version which I didn't like as much as the chicken as the sauce was not as good as the chicken version and the meat was a bit overdone. Nevertheless it was still good. My wife, as usual, absolutely loved hers (that's why she always orders it). For dessert we shared chocolate cake with chocolate sauce and corn ice cream. Corn ice cream sounded weird to me the first time I tried it but I am now a fan, delicious! The wait staff I have found to be among the very best in any restaurant regardless of price. We had Diego this last time and he epitomized what we have consistently found on every visit: staff that is courteous, friendly, attentive and very knowledgeable of the menu which is very helpful when asking for recommendations. Also there is ample parking. All in all it is a wonderful restaurant. Highly recommended.

My wife and I had brunch together following church on Sunday morning and had a delightful experience until she dropped a bit of hot sauce on her white jacket. Our waiter noticed she was struggling to wipe it off and brought her a small glass of club soda and a clean napkin. What a thoughtful and kind gesture! This is what I consider to be above and beyond what is expected. I left him a very nice tip and a thank you note on our check!
